At the beginning of the year, I made a list of all of the goals I would like to accomplish in 2009. Usually each year I just think about them, and they are soon forgotten. But this year I wanted to actually write them down so that I could review them from time to time in order to actually accomplish some of them. One of my goals was to keep a list of all of the meals we have each month. My reasoning behind this was so that next year, and years to come, I could just pull out my January list of meals and be set for the month. I actually did fairly well last month in keeping track of what we had for our dinners. I did forget a few of the days; but overall, I have a list of meals all prepared for next January. Now I am starting on my list for February. If I can just keep up this pace throughout the year, I think it will be very helpful for those times when my brain freezes up and for some reason I just can't seem to think of anything to fix for dinner. Is it only me, or is this a common ailment that happens to other women? Maybe next year my goal can be to also add a shopping list to each of the monthly lists. But for now, I think I will be more than satisfied to just have the monthly menus down on paper.
